Abstract

The goal of the current study was to examine the frequency of engagement in positive events as a mediator in the sleep (e.g., sleep onset latency, time dozing before rising, sleep efficiency, wake after sleep onset, percent wake time, percent sleep time)-positive affect links. The sample included 1225 participants from the MIDUS II (Midlife in the United States) biomarker study. Results showed that the frequency of engagement in positive events mediated the relationship between several sleep measures and positive affect. Findings have implications for the literature on the importance of sleep and emotional development.
